Destabilizing the Margins
An Intersectional Approach to Early Christian Memory
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Kartzow has a rare gift for writing highly accessible but theoretically sophisticated prose. Drawing upon memory theory and concepts of intersectionality, Kartzow pays special attention to the marginalized figures in ancient texts, including the neglected female slave . . . This study greatly advances our understanding of the construction of early Christian identities and will be welcomed by scholars, students, and general readers alike."
--Margaret Y. MacDonald, St. Francis Xavier University
"Combining an intriguing, multifaceted methodological approach with an urge to make visible those outside our spheres of moral concern, Kartzow convincingly demonstrates her renown as a talented, innovative, and committed biblical scholar."
--Christina Petterson, Australian National University
"A deliberate attempt to remember the struggling survivors and hybrid personalities found in the early Christian archives, Destabilizing the Margins shows 'that ideas taken from recent discussions of multiple identities and intersectionality, combined with insights from memory theory, can renew our engagement' with Christian traditions, as well as challenge contemporary simplifications of life worlds, raising hope for the future."
--Pieter Botha, University of South Africa
